Expanding contraceptive choices offers the potential to put power into women’s hands said the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) in reaction to the Sayana Press announcement by Pfizer BD, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and CIFF today.
IPPF is already playing a major role in the introduction of Sayana Press to increase access to the world’s most poorest and underserved women and girls.
IPPF advises and collaborates in Advanced Family Planning (AFP) national and global advocacy efforts. The partnership works to increase financial investments and political commitment needed to ensure access to family planning through effective advocacy. AFP is comprised by more than 20 partner organisations working in Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of the Congo, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania and Uganda with additional opportunity fund grants.
Ms. Anjali Sen, Regional Director, IPPF-South Asia Region said “It comes as a huge relief that Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has decided to reconsider its blanket ban on all advertisements of contraceptives in the electronic media.
Rahnuma, Family Planning Association of Pakistan (Rahnuma-FPAP, the IPPF Member Association in Pakistan) and other civil
society organizations (CSOs) have identified a number of ‘high priority’ pledges: progress towards these pledges is critical for increasing access to modern family planning (FP) methods.
Civil society calls on the government to:
“Immediately after my child was born, I found the market family planning booth to receive free services. The services are right in my community and taking family planning has been a good experience. Things have changed in my life because I can now save money and do other things. I tell my friends they must take their family planning!” - Marie Kamara, 35, Liberia
‘Inspiring Change’ is the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day and it’s something that IPPF’s staff and volunteers do every day of every year. How do we measure our impact?
Association Burkinabé pour le Bien-Etre Familial : training volunteers to deliver information on SRHR, specifically contraception and birth spacing; a project which improved the skills and confidence of volunteers, enabled them to make changes in their own lives and improved community engagement in SRHR and with contraception.
A new level of partnership was launched by UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) today at Women Deliver. It will bring a significant boost in investment to family planning services in 13 countries focusing on vulnerable groups, particularly in areas affected by natural disasters and conflict,
